2018 International Day for Tolerance observed on November 16

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day for Tolerance is observed every year on 16th of November to generate public awareness of the dangers of intolerance. The day also recognises the universal human rights and fundamental freedoms. Tolerance is a struggle for peace. This calls for new policies that respect diversity and pluralism on the basis of human rights. Most of all, this calls on each of us, women and men across the world, to act for tolerance in our own lives, in seeking to understand others, in rejecting all racism and hatred, including anti-Semitism.
